Student Spotlight: Meet Allison Snider!

LKS spotlights student and alumni members that are making a difference in their chapters, in their communities, and in the field of pharmacy.

Tell us about yourself: (school, chapter, work, hobbies, LKS activities, meetings attended)

  • I am currently a P1 attending the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, am a member of the Alpha Mu chapter, and I work as a pharmacy intern at Walgreens in Perrysburg, OH. For hobbies, I enjoy reading, baking, and writing. I’ve participated in many LKS activities varying from our volunteering with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Toledo to planning formals. I’ve attended 2 Midyear Regional Meetings with APhA-ASP and the Ohio Pharmacists Association’s Legislative Day, and I aspire to work in either a clinical pharmacy or ambulatory care setting.
Which of our core values (sisterhood, leadership, service, scholarship and integrity) do you feel you most strongly represent and how?
  • Out of all the core values of LKS, I feel that I exhibit the value of leadership the best of all because I have held several chair positions within my chapter in addition to leadership positions outside of LKS with my chemistry brotherhood and within my university’s chapter of APhA-ASP.
What pharmacy or LKS related events are you looking forward to in this upcoming year?
  • In the upcoming year, I’m looking forward to helping with many more LKS service outreach projects within my chapter, and earning my immunization certification.
What is your favorite chapter/school tradition?
  • My favorite chapter/school tradition is our annual pharmacy fall formal mixer with the pharmacy faculty.
Who do you see as your role model in LKS and why? 
  • My role models in LKS would be the mentors I have had during my time as a sister: Gwen and Lexie. They have been excellent leaders and servants in our chapter and shown me that LKS is a lifetime of sisterhood and growth. They’ve been shoulders to lean on during the hard times and people to go to in the good times. Both are excellent role models for not just Alpha Mu, but all of LKS as well.
What makes you excited to be a ‘lamb for life?’ 
  • I’m most excited to be a ‘Lamb for Life’ because of all the opportunities for professional growth and connecting with other sisters. After graduation, you never stop learning, and I see LKS as an opportunity to continue my professional growth as a pharmacist.
